It's Episode 136 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog.
Despite Peteâs efforts toward the contrary, this weekâs episode is our longest yet, as we dig into our year-end awards, disclosing more than a little about our favourite films and performances. We also react to this past Sundayâs Academy Awards, measuring âBirdmanâ up against the Best Picture winners of the past and speculating about how its leading man couldnât also sail to victory. The weekâs reviews include time travel thriller âPredestination,â starring podcast favourite Ethan Hawke, Jennifer Anistonâs failed Oscar bid, âCake,â and Michael Mannâs latest procedural drama âBlackhat,â which one of us walked out on. Meanwhile, Anna Kendrick is â quite literally â a vision, thereâs an appearance from Gloria Gaynor, and Pete has an abrupt apology for one of last weekâs performers after omitting her from The Pootsition.
